Default Faust: the unexpected mouse

So I have a new pet mouse, Faust! She's young, albino, and adorable. Sugar all the way through, and too fun.

She's got a ten gallon tank, with carefresh bedding, a toilet paper tube, some seeds, and a water bottle right now. It's been a long time since I've had mice, and I know that their standards of care have changed. Does anyone have advice or resources for mouse care?

I know she needs exercise equipment, but I'm not sure what would be best for her.

Does anyone have suggestions as to which food is best?

newspaper, aspen, or carefresh is okay. mauzuri is a good lab block food. they can eat fresh fruit and veggies, pasta, meat, etc, in small amounts

when i had mice i also had rats, and i just treated them exactly the same *shrug*

Um, we need pictures My mouse was unexpected as well lol. For exercise equipment I have a "flying saucer" thing instead of a wheel, but I don't know what's good or bad about one or the other.
